The second example of the backpacks are the backpacks which are used to carrying around certain items. These backpacks are much more durable and are more specifically designed than the ones used by school students and usually, they are built to carry around items like laptops. These backpacks usually come with extra features like a padded interior for example, because they are used to carrying out specific items.
The third type of backpack is also rather common, and frequent travelers especially are going to be used to seeing it - the backpacks for travelers. Tourists and travelers travelling to other places for a period of time are frequently seen carrying this type of backpack around. They are built much bigger than your ordinary average backpack because they are meant to fit a lot more items in them, hence they are used for travelling. They also come with thicker straps so they can be easily carried around, and they are able to hold a heavier load because of the material they are made of.
If my three hours was any indication, buying a good backpack is not an easy task. With hundreds of backpack manufacturers and styles, it can understandably be overwhelming. Whatever you do, don't go cheap. You'll be doing yourself a disservice and end up buying a new one anyways. A good backpack is an investment. You needn't spend $500 on a backpack, but be wary of cheap, no-frills, run of the mill $70 brands, as you'll regret the design flaws and absence of extras. Spend a little more for a good backpack from a trusted brand, and it will be your companion for many trips to come. The Osprey pack I eventually settled on has traveled with me from the U.S to the Middle East for 10 awesome years and I know it has another good 10 years to go.
First of all, remember the golden rule of backpacking \"buy right and pack light\". That means you should buy the right backpack according to your needs and pack it light with essential things only. A right backpack is the one with the right size to fit your torso. It is the first and most important step to safe backpack use. If you can bring one of your friends with you while buying any backpack then it is ok, otherwise ask the salesperson to help you measure your backpack properly.
Backpacks also come with a lot of different compartments. If you go on a longer hiking trip you may want to have a compartment for a handheld gps, or for your cell phone that is easily accessible. If you carry your tent and sleeping bag along you may want to look at easy storage compartments that are accessible through zippers on top and bottom of your backpack. This comes in handy when you need an item that is stored on the bottom of your backpack so you don't need to empty the whole backpack to get to it, but simply open the bottom zippers. When you are hiking in a more challenging dry, hot environment you may want to look for an outdoor backpack that has a hydration pack included. This is a build in water tank that enables you to drink out of a attached water tube without using your hands or holding a water bottle. Also a good backpack for mountain biking or other sports activities.
Functionality of the laptop backpack is best assessed by asking a question, what kind of laptop backpack do I need? Do I need a bag with just a padded compartment for my laptop or a bag that consists of a padded compartment for a laptop together with other features such an organizer with storage space for media devices, mp3 player pouch and a zip way mesh water bottle holder? Laptop backpack bags available in the market address this kind of need. In browsing the web I came across this particular bag which I think is very smart, sleek and most of all functional especially to those people on the go. The Fulton bag by Mc Klein fits laptops that are 15\" in size. The bag has a top-Loading Access with detachable computer sleeve that stores and protects laptops, an organizer with storage space for media devices, cell phone, business cards and pens, a MP3 or CD player pouch complete with slit for ear phones, a zip-away mesh water bottle holder and side zipper pockets for small miscellaneous items, a dual side pockets for accessories and a zippered file compartment. The great thing about this Fulton bag is the air-lift padding against the back to keep the carrier comfortable.
